republic to stand on its own two feet again. now let's join our course of team and their travels across the world's largest country russia exploring its historic regions and thousand year old tradition. well today we continue exploring russia's kirov region some one thousand kilometers from moscow very rare isn't just known for its folk art and the rave museums is here family comes first and locals tried to help all orphaned kids find a home and authorities have reports even children with his ickle mental and psychological disabilities don't feel abandoned. apart from being a personal tragedy added difficulty to overcome being an orphan there's also a social problem in russia there are thousands of thousands of orphans but in fact
4:21 pm
most of them have either parents all relatives outside of the orphanage but these people simply do not want to look after them all culebra trusted to do so so this is something that needs to be solved on a social level general social problem for these children to be taken away how can they be tackled so that's not necessarily something that either an individual orphanage or an individual part of russia can provide but the same god the care region they're trying they're saying ok we're being dealt with all these orphans we're receiving all these people but at least all we can do is provide all of them a new home and that's what they're trying to do as you can see in the report. in russia it's hard enough to find a new family for healthy old friends it's even harder for children like these all of them diagnosed in serious physical mental also i can logical disability. here at kira's finish number one they manage it well in russia there are currently
